• Installing a PC Card or an ExpressCard 

• Removing a Smart Card 

• Installing a Smart Card 



Card Types 



PC Cards 



See "Specifications" in your User's Guide for information on supported PC Cards. 




NOTE: A PC Card is not a bootable device. 



The PC Card slot has one connector that supports a single Type I or Type 1 1 card. The PC Card slot supports CardBus technology and extended PC Cards. Type 
of card refers to its thickness, not its functionality. 



PC Card Blanks 

Your computer shipped with a plastic blank installed in the PC Card slot. Blanks protect unused slots from dust and other particles. Save the blank for use 
when no PC Card is installed in the slot; blanks from other computers may not fit your computer. 



Extended PC Cards 

An extended PC Card (for example, a wireless network adapter) is longer than a standard PC Card and extends outside the computer. Follow these 
precautions when using extended PC Cards: 

i Protect the exposed end of an installed card. Striking the end of the card can damage the system board. 
i Always remove an extended PC Card before you pack the computer in its carrying case. 



Smart Card 

lEH NOTE: For information on how to secure your computer while traveling, see "Traveling With Your Computer" in your User's Guide. 
IEj NOTE: The smart card feature may not be available on your computer. 

Smart cards are portable, credit-card shaped devices with internal integrated circuits. The top surface of the smart card usually contains an embedded 
processor under the gold contact pad. The combination of the small size and integrated circuits make smart cards valuable tools for security, data storage, and 
special programs. Using smart cards can improve system security by combining something a user has (the smart card) with something only the user should 
know (a PIN) to provide more secure user-authentication than passwords alone. 



Removing a PC Card or Blank 

,/\ CAUTION: Before you begin any of the procedures in this section, follow the safety instructions in the Product I nformation Guide. 



NOTI CE: Use the PC Card configuration utility (click the s^ icon in the taskbar) to select a card and stop it from functioning before you remove it 
from the computer. If you do not stop the card in the configuration utility, you could lose data. Do not attempt to eject a card by pulling its cable, if 
one is attached. 

Press the release latch and remove the card or blank. For some release latches, you must press the latch twice: once to pop the latch out, and then a second 
time to pop the card out. 

Save a blank to use when no PC Card is installed in a slot. Blanks protect unused slots from dust and other particles.

I nstalling a PC Card or an ExpressCard 

f\ CAUTI ON: Before you begin any of the procedures in this section, follow the safety instructions in the Product I nformation Guide. 

You can install a PC Card or ExpressCard in the computer while the computer is running. The computer automatically detects the card. 

PC Cards and ExpressCards are generally marked with a symbol (such as a triangle or an arrow) to indicate which end to insert into the slot. The cards are 
keyed to prevent incorrect insertion. If card orientation is not clear, see the documentation that came with the card. 

1. Hold the card with its orientation symbol pointing into the slot and the top side of the card facing up. The latch may need to be in the in position before 
you insert the card. 

2. Slide the card into the slot until the card is completely seated in its connector. 

If you encounter too much resistance, do not force the card. Check the card orientation and try again.

The computer recognizes most PC Cards and automatically loads the appropriate device driver. If the configuration program tells you to load the 
manufacturer's drivers, use the floppy disk or CD that came with the PC Card. 

To install an ExpressCard: 

1. Place the ExpressCard in the PC Card adapter (the adapter is included with the ExpressCard). 

2. Install the ExpressCard with adapter the same way as a PC Card.
